CHR Comment: The death of Carter’s 28-year old grandson was a surprise and not well explained in the article. Also missing was any discussion of heaven and the promise of the resurrection through faith in Christ. Perhaps all of that was discussed but was not included in the write up. Former Pres. Carter was recently in the news having announced at this same Bible class that his cancer was in remission.
Notes on the pastor’s sermon and comments seem conservative theologically, emphasizing Christ’s resurrection. The end of the article gives some information about the historic congregation, which baptized its first African American member in 1803.
